The Little Book of Lies is a unique artist's book fashioned from craft store photo album kit. Inside are eight cut and paste paper collage images, with accompanying text written by the artist. Scrolling across the back side of the accordion is a simple meditation on Truth and Lies: ... not everything needs to brought into the light, not every truth needs to be told. Truth is not always beautiful, and beautiful is not always true.
Artist BioLynn lives and works on an island in the middle of a lake surrounded by a big city, in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. After retiring from the practice of law in 2008, she began making artist's books and small works on paper. Old-style cut & paste collage has been and remains a favorite medium, and she frequently also incorporates sewing techniques, thread, fabric, metal, wood, and other materials into her pieces. The goal is always to tell a story that might startle, amuse or provoke. Lynn's work has appeared in book arts and collage exhibitions across the country.
